Pros: All cables can be removed and replaced, even the main 20+4 cable! Comes with lots of cables for all your Molex/SATA needs! Allows you to monitor performance & even change from a single rail to a multi rail.
Cons: Out of the box, monitoring feature requires a free USB pin header on your mother board. If you do not have one, you will have to buy a USB Mini-B cable & run it out to a free USB port on the rear of your computer.
Stiff cables will cause problems you if you have 2 HDD/SSD drives close together.
Other Thoughts: Would be great if Corsair offered sleeved cables instead of these rigid almost inflexible cables. Still a great PSU since you can remove every single cable should you have to remove it to clean or replace it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1: Powerful! Almost as much power as a Titan!
2: Fans shut off during idle to save power & reduce fan wear.
3: Full sized HDMI port, not that Mini HDMI crud.
4: Covers on SLI connector and and all connector ports.
5: Finally puts that Windows 7 Graphics performance to 7.9
Cons: 1: Does have some coil whine noise when card is working hard.
2: World of Warcraft at max settings can cause this card to drop under 60fps when raiding at 1080p.
3: Does not include backplate unless purchased during promotion.
4: Documentation clearly indicates that the fans shut off when the card is cool or idling. But when the fans are not running, they tend to "Twitch", and it could cause some people to wrongfully assume the fan or card is damaged.
5: While the card has vent holes, it does not blow it's heat exhaust out the back, and instead blows it everywhere. Might cause heating issues with some cases. Make sure your case has good ventilation.
Other Thoughts: 1: For the cost of this card, the Backplate should have been included with it out of the box. The fact I can't even order it due to it being out of stock is even more annoying.
2: I don't like the location of the power plugs. Wish they were facing the hard drive cage & not the side.
3: Maybe EVGA could add some little LED's to the card so the cover lights up.
I replaced a EVGA GTX 560 SC with this card & pretty much saw a almost 3x improvement in graphics performance! I am pretty much happy with this card even with it's minor faults. Would be nice if I could SLI this card with the previous card I had, but sadly, that is beyond what NVIDIA's technological capabilities can do. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.
Took off 1 egg for not including the Backplate. *sad face*
Pros: Pick one of 3 free games!
Cons: You are forced to use U-Play
Key Cannot be activated on Steam.
Other Thoughts: Game Code sent via E-Mail, and not as a physical card in the package, so don't go looking for this in the box when you order your video card.READ FULL REVIEW
